Admission to Reception

Children in Birmingham can go to school (Reception) in the September after their 4th birthday. That means that if your child was born between 1 September 2014 and 31 August 2015, they’ll be able to start school in September 2019.



Application for a Change of School (In –Year)

A certificate of Catholic Baptism / Reception should be provided in order for the application to be considered in a Catholic category. Failure to provide evidence of Catholic Baptism / Reception may affect the criterion YOUR child’s name is placed in.

Please note: You must also complete a local authority application form. The supplementary information form is only for school use to enable the governing body to rank applicants using the published criteria.
